It is sad... I saw Morrissey twice solo years ago and he was great, but he's tanking and not taking it well. His last album bombed and the label dropped him.Marr is one of my favorite players. Morrissey was quite a witty writer. Now he's a a sad tool.
I love The Smiths, and they’re very influential. But that band wasn’t even the top 10 to debut during the 80’s. None of their own records are really recognized as socially or critically significant compared to those that they influenced, and it’s arguable that Marr and Morrissey are more recognized for their work post-Smiths+their appearances in 00’s/10’s soundtracks+Tumblr.One of the best guitar bands of the 20th century.
